This helps allot. In doing my own research I could not locate where Neal's district would be. But there is clearly a Neal's district in Warren Co. Ga. So… it looks as if Ancestry.com is loosing credibility. at least for me. They have changed a few other things through the years. I have been doing this for 20 years and have see some of their references change.. What I am saying is that I printed documentation from 1995 and when I look up the same information the documentation or location has changed. Anyway.. Thank you everyone for your help. It would have been cool if it had been correct because the Jacobs were suppose to have come down from Va and I was thinking that they might have stopped over in Warren County in between census years. I will look for them in Georgia, but that does not make as much sense. But then who knows where they were. It was only 200 years ago. Thanks again. Linda Shaw REsearching.
